      FROM OUR RECIPE ARCHIVES: Joe Wilfer’s Tom & Jerry

      The Tom & Jerry–a frothy, rich Christmas-time drink akin to eggnog–was, according to cocktail historian David Wondrich, created in the early 1850s by famed mixologist Jerry Thomas. As legend goes, Thomas refused to make them until after the first snowfall. It may not be Christmas yet, but the snow has fallen, people, so ready your mixers!

      Another Sneak Peek at our Good Spirits Party Lineup

      There’s something about Tuesday that’s maybe a bit blah. It’s not quite Monday, but it’s definitely not Friday. Why not add some tasty excitement to it with a ticket to Good Spirits on February 28th from 6-9pm? You’d better hurry though, because they are flying. You won’t want to miss out on food and drink from over 50 of the city’s best restaurants and distillers, all for just $45 at Downstairs at 82 Mercer in Soho.
